Visit Scotland August 2016

Owned by Murdo and Beth MacLeod and their excellent team of local staff with multiple awards for hospitality and quality of food, Knockderry Country House Hotel offers a truly Scottish country house welcome to all visitors to Cove and the Rosneath Peninsula near Loch Lomond.

The unique coastline, fairy-tale castles and famous distilleries, mean there is so much to do and see.  The hotel is within easy reach of Loch Lomond, Loch Fyne and the historic town of Inveraray, yet it is less than an hour’s drive from Glasgow and less from Glasgow Airport.
